I'm Gonna Have a Garden This Year

Got my seeds going. I started these about a week and a half ago. My peppers are lazy and haven't decided to show their pretty faces yet. I've got some lettuce, kale, beans, dill, basil, thyme, tomatoes, and some other things. I've got to thin them out but I can't bring myself to do that just yet. They're just so cute and little. 

I let them enjoy the sunshine while I was grilling. It was over 60 degrees outside. A nice change from the 30-40 degree weather we've been having lately. It was also sunny, it's been cloudy the last week as well. 

I Bought a New Grill

I bought a new grill a couple weeks ago but didn't get it set up until today. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner. I can't believe I didn't buy this last summer when we moved up here. I bought this cute little electric grill from The upfront cost is higher but I'll never have to buy charcoal or propane so it's worth it. 

I bought some real hamburger so I could have real burgers instead of just turkey burgers. There's nothing wrong with turkey burgers but we put ground turkey in everything so it's nice to have some beef for a change. There was a $0.25 rebate on bacon in my Snap by Groupon app (psst, that's a referral link, if you redeem an offer I get a dollar *gasp*) and that was a good enough reason to buy some bacon.

My roommates were at work so I had to eat all of this by myself. Life is so hard.

I'm actually really proud of this burger photograph. It's like I actually know how to use a camera. Also grill bacon is best bacon. I thought oven bacon was the best but it seems to be better on the grill because all the grease can drip off and it's perfect and crispy. It also takes about the same amount of time as the burgers so everything is done at the same time.

What is that?

"What is that?"
"It's a gate to cover their trashbins."

No. That's not what I was pointing to. Josh, Chris, and I have started taking long walks around downtown Duluth. We found this on our way back to our house. It appears to be a branch with a bunch of fake birds glued to it. I have no idea.

Cards Against Humanity

Josh decided we needed to have a house bonding night and I had a brand new Cards Against Humanity (and expansion one) to play. So we all had some drinks and some terrible things happened. I ended up winning because I'm the most terrible. Woo?

Resting B**** Face

"You need a better smile and a better attitude." 

I was actually having a very pleasant day and I was quite happy. But sometimes my face gets all blank like this and sometimes I think my smile looks weird so I don't smile as much. 

It's funny because she was mad at me because her card got declined. (It happens all the time and usually it's Walmart's fault but there's nothing we can do.) Then since she hadn't used a check there in so long I had to put in her license number and phone number. Some people get really upset when I have to put their phone number in the computer. 

It's one thing to criticize my work, it's another to criticize me. 

So I wished her a nice day and then promptly told all of my coworkers about it. 

Moral of the story: Be careful what you say and do because you might just turn into the workplace joke. Alternately if you are awesome to us we will brag about you endlessly.

Shoes, Why Are There So Many

There are so many shoes in my entryway right now. I live with three men. There weren't this many shoes when I lived with three women. 

Date Night at Applebees.

Josh has been making some resolutions to better himself so we went on a date night to get some couple time in. Applebees half-apps are one of our favorite because they're so cheap and long islands are so cheap and delicious.

So first we just sat and held hands and stared at each other. Because we're adorable and just super weird. I laughed first and lost. I started thinking about how silly we must look to everyone around us.

They had a bunch of new appetizers and we tried the Sriracha Shrimp which was good but not necessarily $10 good. 

I got long islands and chicken wonton tacos which were delicious as usual. Josh went for the beer pub pretzels even though they weren't half off. 

I'm not being paid for this post but I should be.

Fitger's Daycare in Duluth, MN

Did you know the Fitger's complex has daycare? Me either until I was wandering through and found it. Are you kidding me. What?

Skyline Drive

Josh took me up to the skyline drive because he wasn't feeling very good and didn't want to go for a full walk. Turns out people really like to throw stuff off this hill.

From a distance it looked like a tv on top of a mini fridge. Turns out it was on top of an open safe. How about that. We also found the top of a parking meter and considered taking it home with us but it was heavy and I didn't know what we would do with it so Josh threw it down the hill.

Valentines Date at Qdoba

Josh and I went to Qdoba for lunch because they had a buy one get one free deal on smothered burritos if you kissed someome. So we kissed and ate burritos. They were quite good. Also you can't go wrong with free guacamole. Though it was kind of hard to eat since you couldn't pick it up and eat it. I left a lot of the tortilla in the bowl.
